“Having known Bill for nearly two decades, including during our respective tenures as Global Chair of Public Relations Organisation International (PROI), the largest network of independent public relations firms in the world, I can fully appreciate what Bill will bring to The PR Trust and The Future Communicators Foundation, which is a tremendous depth of industry knowledge and experience that will enable us to go from strength to strength,” said Richard Tsang, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The PR Trust, the non-profit organisation that administers The Future Communicators Foundation.

“In 2014 Bill Carlson was an early supporter when I announced my dream to form an organization to provide financial support, mentorship and opportunities for internships for future communicators while they were studying to enter the profession. This led to the formation  of The Future Communicators Foundation and The PR Trust. I am excited to have Bill join us as a Trustee and I look forward to working with him as we further expand FCF’s globally,” said Allard W. van Veen, Founder of The PR Trust and The Future Communicators Foundation (FCF).
